“You want a straw with that?”

Here’s a truck loaded with about a gazillion straws.  It’s part of the culture here—probably because of an assumption that nothing you drink from is hygienic–that every drink is served with a straw.  You buy a Coke in a bottle, you get a straw.  You get an iced tea in a restaurant, you get a straw.  You order a glass of milk, a straw comes with it.  You buy a canned soft drink, a straw.  You buy a fresh coconut on the street, you get a straw.  This same truck loads up at the same shop 3, 4, 5 times a week.  They would put more on the truck but notice they are just now under the mass of wires above the load.
